Catalogue Note

The sitter of this portrait is unidentified. However, the hair and face recall the consort of Ferdinand III, Holy Roman Empress Marie, Queen of Hungary and Bohemia (d.1646). On the other hand the treatment of the double chin is more reminiscent of Maria de Medici Queen of France (d.1642), who is often depicted in this manner.
